New Jersey reported 2,481 new coronavirus cases Tuesday, bringing the state’s total to 116,264.
Another 329 people died of complications from COVID-19. The state has now lost 6,770 residents total to the pandemic.
“To put that in perspective, and let’s just pause and think about this for a second,” Gov. Phil Murphy said, “the number of 6,770 is more than New Jerseyans lost in World War I, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, both Gulf wars, Afghanistan and Iraq, Superstorm Sandy and 9/11 combined.
